October 15th, 2018 - Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day at the IRIS Office in Faribault MN.

This photo is of the 5,000 plus memorial hearts that have the names of children from around the world on them. These hearts were placed in the cradle of the bronze weeping Angel that is permanently on display in front of the IRIS Office in Faribault MN. A candlelight service was held at 7 pm on October 15th to honor these precious children.

The life sized bronze statue called “I Knew You in the Womb” is by world renowned sculpture Timothy J. Schmalz. It depicts an Angel weeping over an empty cradle. You are welcome to visit the statue at anytime. You are always welcome to leave flowers (silk or fresh), letters, balloons, etc. Taking pictures is always encouraged.  The IRIS staff and volunteers will not bother you if you come to visit however, if you would like us to take your picture by the Angel please come and ask.  We would be very happy to do so!
